Focus on Health

Well, yesterday's gallstone episode and today's doctor's appointment reminded me of the importance of living the healthiest life possible. I am having numerous blood tests and an ultrasound done over the course of the next week and will probably meet with a surgeon some time soon. In the meantime, here are my goals for the near future:
  • Work out every day but be kind to your body and listen to your body - in fact, I felt some pain in my abdomen on Saturday while I was working out at the gym. However, instead of being kind to my body I insisted on pushing through "whatever" I felt.
  • Eat healthy foods - well, now I also have to take my gallstones into account. I probably should have considered them before... :)
  • Be positive - instead of focusing on all the "what ifs" and on what could go wrong, I should focus on how much better my life will be without these episodes and without the fear of these episodes
Well, life is a journey, and if you open your eyes and your mind, you can learn something and grow every day! As a dear friend of mine frequently reminds me "things happen for a reason."

Be well,
